Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT)

Medication-Assisted Treatment is a potentially live-saving option for many clients and patients to help support them in their recovery from opioid or alcohol addiction.

The ATTC Network developed this website as resource for treatment providers and medical professionals in order to increase outreach, access and retention in MAT, especially for specific minority populations.


Save families. Save jobs. Save Communities. Save Lives!

Substance use disorders impact every sector of society. All races, cultures, ages and genders are affected. The good news is that addiction is treatable, and you can help. Addictions professionals not only provide hope to individuals and families, but they also save lives.

September is Recovery Month

In its 25th year, Recovery Month promotes the benefits of prevention, treatment, and recovery for mental and substance use disorders. This year’s theme, “Join the Voices for Recovery: Speak Up, Reach Out,” encourages people to openly speak up about mental and substance use disorders. Recovery Month spreads the positive message that behavioral health is essential to health, prevention works, treatment is effective and people can and do recover.
